The batteries arrived today with the MPPT and have been installed. It was late in the day before I had finshed and initially the controller went to bulk then abs.
The first thing I did was to make a stainless steel backplate to fasten the controller to and use copper and plastic tubing to keep it off the wall, only a centimetere or so.
I have also connected the 1200w inverter, but there is no other loading.
May 7th Battery voltage of the 2 x S6 145's in series was 12.76. The electrolyte was high in one cell so I distributed it amongst all six.
Cable from MPPT to batteries is approx AWG 8 or 8.4㎜² (50 amps)
Could do with
May 9th Electrolyte levels are fine
May 13th Must use VE Direct USB to set up MPPT and equalise. ✓
June 17thHave fitted a fuse box to inverter output and wiring from there to a) 6A fuse to wiring for sockets to a double socket about the workbench, a double socket by the computer platform and wire to a further socket by the steps. b) 16A fuse for cable to external socket and c) Unfused to a 3 gang row above the electric work bench.
So for power to any 1) switch on inverter, 2) switch on fuse box.
I will not be making a spreadsheet of input and output for a while.
Probably not a lot of noteable acitivity in the box, but it is the object of speculation. The lid being only 7" x 3" with a depth of some 3 and 3/8ths. It weights some 6lb 10oz (3Kg). The content seems to be a block that can move a little vertically but there is no detecteble movement, by hand, horizontally.
The box has been sealed by what looks like solder and what would be important enough to seal from the air. Including the steel box that appears to be a maximum of 1/16" thick the density is (weight / volume) = 3Kg ÷ 1.14Lt = 2.63.
The density is to hight for paper money or any sort of biological matter. Most metals have a higher density and why would a piece of metal be so contained?
Well after some 32 years or more maybe it's time to open the bow, by grinding off the lid edges.
